Great camera, views in the day time are good, night time are average, but they all are limited at night, the let down is the bracket, it has limited angles and use, i have a large and steep windscreen, peugeot 3008, and this does not allow all the positions i like, that said, i have found a good position on the screen now, the camera is small, but needs space due to the bracket. I have a 32gb card and again this is needed for 3+ hours etc. Overall a great unit, i dont miss the gps and speed recording, i have turned of the mic / sound recording so as to save space. The software the manufacturer supplies is ok, but i just plug and play on a windows 7 pc and the standard movie package opens and reads it, all good.

Great quality and clear footage. I spent hours looking at dash cams after the one i was bought by my husband for my birthday stopped working after its first outing. In the end we paid a bit more money and settled for this one. It is of good quality and feels much more sturdier than the one which broke. It is easy to set up, literally take it out of the box and plug into cigarette lighter and away you go. However, the standard settings are pretty minimalist, not even recording in hd, so if you want to use all the features of the camera you will need to go into the settings and (gulp) read the instruction manual. The instructions are basic but then when you get into the settings it is actually fairly easy to set up. I made the mistake of setting the g-shock sensor to ‘high’ meaning that every time i touched the thing an alarm went off and locked the recording. Very frustrating but eventually i was able to touch it lightly enough to get back into the settings and change it backthe main downside for me was that it doesn’t come with a usb cable. It takes mini usb, not the more popular micro usb, and with my first purchase rather than buying a cigarette adapter with several holes to accept the cigarette lighter lead, i purchased a double usb socket which goes into the cigarette lighter then you can plug two usb leads into it to charge.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • The MiVue 638 Touch is an elegant and lightweight dash cam
  • The 1080p HD camera starts recording when you start your car and you can easily access the menu with the touch screen
  • With the second SD card slot, you’ll have a backup of your video
  • MiVue manager desktop application, means you can share your videos on Facebook and YouTube as well
  • Integrated GPS tracks your route, including speed, altitude, longitude, latitude and heading so you’ll always know where to drive extra carefully

Working perfectly, well packaged.

Unfortunately the wifi feature is useless for few reasons. I’ve been using this dash cam for few days. I bought the wifi model to eliminate the process of taking the memory card out of the device to view on full screen or backup the recordings. Unfortunately the wifi feature is useless for few reasons; (1) the camera will not turn the wifi on if you choose to record in highest resolution (1296p). (2) the wifi file transfer is extremely slow, a 3 minutes clips in 1080p will take 20+ minutes to transfer (3) the camera suggest you to pause recording if you choose to transfer files faster over the wifi although still it takes 15+ minutes to transfer a 3 minutes clip. The recordings in 1080p and 1296p are otherwise very clear and crisp.

Fits neatly next to the mirror with the display visible. It is plugged into the cigarette lighter so always turns on when the car is started. Replays are good with ability to store parked files as well as driving ones or reduce the parked storage to leave more room for driving files. Feel securer after having had a moped hit me and they didn’t report it so i nearly had to share the blame but the other driver’s insurance eventually paid up.

Mio MiVue 638 Touch Full 1080 p HD 2.7 inch LCD GPS Dash Cam Accident Recorder Dashboard Camera : Excellent image quality and very intuitive to use, also power cable is long enough to reach right around the edge of the windscreen on my fiat motorhome.

Good but i have found 1080p uses a lot of card memory. There is no settings to record in 720p, i have found with other dash cams i have that 720 is just as clear.

This is one of the better camaras. This will be the 3rd camara i have bought for my vehicles, whilst at first looks a little complicated once in position and plugged in it works itselfexelent picture when viewed on computer screen.

Bought as a gift for christmas for my sister, she seems to find it easy to use. The camera lense seems pretty good and captures everything and more as it’s really wide. She puts it to the left of the interior mirror. Only thing she doesn’t like about it is that you can’t leave the mount up and take the camera down as it’s too much hassle.

It has been as good as expected. I bought two, one for the front and one for the back. The one on the front has been stuck since i bought it. The one on the back keeps dropping off every few days. Other than that, it has been as good as expected.

At first i thought the satnav was too large but i managed to position it so that it rested on the top of the dashboard which kept it out of my line of vision. The manual that comes with the unit is pretty useless but the user can find their own way through the functions without too much trouble. The voice of the satnav is not quiet loud enough and you have to turn down the radio a bit but if you’re in a truck that might not be sufficient. The second choice voice is the best for clarity. The screen image is not bad but it does pick up reflections which weaken the picture. The dash camcorder records okay but i haven’t tried to download it to my computer yet, i did read somewhere that you have to get special software to do this. The satnav doesn’t pick up at least half of the fixed speed safety cameras and misses all of the average speed cameras, so don’t rely on it. I might get a separate unit for this. I tow a caravan a lot and the restricted vehicle size function works very well and has been tested a couple of times and this was why i gave it the extra star to make it three star judgment.

Nice, solid, does not move in auto motion, clear image and playback, took a while to figure out how to do upgrades.

Reasonable quality but poor in some areas. Suction mount far too big (compared to some others) for discreet mounting,had to make my own plastic mount to be able to mount it where i wanted it,unit gets very hot, charge cable should be at least another 12″ longer to reach most cigar terminals. The free camera updates is a bit of a no no at the moment been trying to download updates for 3 days now,and still not suceeded yet, very difficult, some files arrived as “bin” files and require a program to unwrap them which did not work ( some reviews complain that they do not exist) beginning to think so myself. At this time the sound on playback does not work even though it is selected in the menue.

The wi-fi is on the slow side but i was able to transfer images to my phone. This will come in very handy in case of an accident as most of my days at work is on in traffic. Very happy and excited about this kit still early days though. Amazon ace for punctuality delivered spot on time๐Ÿ–’๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Expensive but well worth it. . Nice having the front and back cam. Having the back cam was handy after being hit in the back and the driver just driving on after i pulled over. Only thing i found with it at the min is that the holder for it is loose and the cam tens to move a little if i go over speed bumps and i have to reset it.

Capture great quality footage with the added benefit of speed trap warnings.
